I've been there few times when I used to live in Portsmouth. The service is good and quite quick. The food is good as well and various but just a bit expensive. The place is absolutely lovely. I suggest to book a table in advance.

My boyfriend and I go to Sakura every week, usually as a nice friday night treat! The food is outstanding, the sashimi and sushi are so fresh. We've pretty much tried everything on the very large menu and have loved it all, so it's always hard to choose what to have! The staff here are so lovely, we know them... More

So much choice it was hard to decide but everything I had was delicious, brilliant delicious sushi, fresh salad, and giant piles of tasty noodles with loads of meat for bargain prices (good beer too!) and best green tea ice-cream I've ever had. Really friendly, helpful staff and the food all came really quickly. Will definitely visit again next time... More

This is by far my favorite restaurant. When I first came here just under 2 years ago, I was very picky with fish. Now, I will try anything on the menu, as I know anything I order will be delicious. The staff are always attentive, friendly and quick. I recommend the Cuttlefish Tentacles.

Been going here for years. Recently visited on a Monday night as was not as good as previously. Maybe a different chef from the weekend? Good range of sushi/sashimi and cooked food. Not too bad on price, but it can get expensive when it all adds up! Best Japanese in Portsmouth.

One of my favourite restaurants, staff are really friendly and always remember me when I revisit even after a month. Gorgeous fresh sushi, best I've has, even better than London. Homemade green tea ice cream is to die for. And even do proper iced green tea not that sugary stuff from a can. Really good value for money, reasonably priced... More

Ate in here recently and having been a few times before, as always, we were very happy with the service and food. The mixed sashimi is really good, as is the sushi. I look forward to eating here when we are in Southsea.

Top quality food, very friendly waiter, excellent service, romantic atmosphere, 5* for their Hygiene rating are just a few words to sum up sakura. I guess being near the port makes their fish alot fresher too!! Best japanese food I have tasted in UK, even if your not a fan of raw fish, their cooked dishes are top class too!... More

I've been in Sakura four times during my stay in Portsmouth and I always enjoyed my dinner! Excellent japanese food in particular noodles and ramen with fish.The staff were friendly and attentive. I would definitely recommend this restaurant but I suggest to book a table because the place is always quite busy.
